Wonder Kids Blog

Wayne Wonder Based in Gloucestershire in the U.K is one of the country's leading children's entertainers and winner of multiple awards across his field.

As a magician and children's entertainer I am constantly on the look out for new ideas, different takes on old ideas and practically anything I can add into my repertoire.  As a by product of this I come across or invent lots of ideas that for one reason or another I can't fit into my shows.  That doesn't mean that they are no good in fact many of them work great for ideas to try at home.  I only realised this after having my daughter and seeing how much she enjoyed them.  That's why I have created this resource, for families to visit take away what they want and try these things at home.  You have everything at your fingertips for great, easy and inexpensive ideas for your little ones at home.  Going out to new experiences and spending time together as a family is important if not crucial to a child's development but that doesn't mean you have to go out and spend lots of money every time, you can create amazing memories just by investing a little bit of time at home with these great ideas.

Trolls - Desk Buddy

We've come to the final week of our Trolls fun.  How do you like the new Wonder Kids Section so far?  Im getting some great feed back from it and the overhaul is not finished yet.  I have a few more ideas but I think they may have to wait until next year now.  Next week we start a brand new theme and I think it could be one of our most popular yet! First, this week I have these great Trolls Desk Buddy's.  They make any kids desk look great and are loads of fun.
